Celeriac is the Eric Clapton of veg: very ordinary on its own but pretty special with Cream.

aerating shoes

Was the lawn ok?

Edit: The spiked shoes are rubbish. You have to be on the lawn to actually use them, any back steps onto paths snap the spikes off and they also hunt out hose pipes and attack them before the hose pipe retaliates and tries to constrict you. I wound up in a tangled mess on the lawn.  OH thought it was hilarious.

The scaffolding mesh is very useful but it is fine and I think it stops/ restricts the  chlorophyll light absorption that is needed for photosynthesis. as i have quite a lot.

Doing Tom Kerridge mums sausage roast. I think its just a fancy meat loaf and i was never overly thrilled with meat loaf. This one looks to be a bit different though.

It only requires 100 ml of white wine so really not sure what I am going to do with the rest

netting crops

I tried this site to get my soil testing kit and they had a offer on for netting not long back. Perhaps it could be helpful?

I haven't compared prices with other places so you would have to check them out.

Talking of candles on trees. I remember a small brass fan about the size of a jam pot lid with little brass angels hanging off it. the candles were below and the convection heat turned the fan, spinning the angels and casting shadows. Simple but affective.

They did the same thing with the old electric fires with the plastic coal affect on top to make it look like it was burning.

Obviously they used the heat of the electric bulbs and not a real flame on the fire.
